-mails. she asks a friend at the fbi to help launch an investigation. the e-mails it is eventually discovered are being sent by broadwell. the fbi also discovers that broadwell and petraeus have been having an affair. meanwhile, the fbi agent who kelley approached gross frustrated after he's kept off the case. his supervisors reportedly are concerned that he has, quote, grown obsessed with the matter. it's also uncovered that he has sent shirtless photos of himself to kelley. that agent contacts republican congressman david reichert to air his frustrations. reichert then passes the information on to house majority leader eric cantor who speaks with the fbi whistle-blower in late october. it turns out that another major military figure, general john allen, the commander of u.s. and nato troops in afghanistan and petraeus' successor in that position, has been having an e-mail relationship with jill kelley. the fbi uncovers somewhere between 20,000 and 30,000 pages of documents that contain, quote, potentially inappropriate communication between allen and kelley. one senior u.s. defense official
24 hours to think about it, and there was a lot involved. i think absent the fbi investigation which we are told by law enforcement officials are unlikely to lead to any criminal charges. it is an issue that has to be investigated because there's schur communications involved and there are classification rules. absent that investigation i'm not sure whether he could have soldiered through -- a pun i probably should not make -- and not have to resign. perhaps the president would not have accepted the resignation. dianne feinstein said today that she wished the president had not accepted the resignation. she very strongly believed that he was a key and essential piece of the national security community, and of this administration. i'm not sure whether the personal transgression although there's a code of honor and he felt strongly that he had frankly, screwed up, and that he had to pay the consequences, and after 24 hours, and clearly consulting his colleagues, other people in the national security community, don't know who else, the president agreed and accepted it on the phone in a c
the fbi, the cia, and the military and the nation spreads again. now, another general, another woman and a whole slew of new questions. general john allen accused of exchanging tens of thousands of pages of emails with a married woman. a senior official says those emails got a little flirty but general allen says he did nothing wrong. >> the president has great confidence in the military, great confidence in his commanders. >> shepard: tonight, an investigation threatens the career of another top leader. plus, president obama reportedly considering u.s. ambassador season rice for his next secretary of state. >> i love my job here at the united nations. >> but after she portrayed the benghazi consulate attack as a that spun out of control. some lawmakers say she doesn't deserve the job. >> i think susan rice has disqualified herself. >> tonight, controversy in the cabinet. >> and searching for more victims of super storm sandy. >> the national guard is going building to building and door to door checking on any victims of the storm who may still need help. >> jonathan hunt on parole w
affair. also, we have learned from law enforcement officials that the fbi is now investigating, and this is an ongoing investigation into paula broadwell. she is someone who's had close access to general petraeus, she was his biographer and wrote a book on general petraeus called "all in." she has spent substantial time with him the fbi investigation is seeing whether he had improper access to general petraeus' e-mails may have accidentally or deliberately had accuracy to classified information. and paula broadwell has been close to david petraeus which many people could say it's an indication of the timing of this. >> david, you're excellent at covering all the spying agencies. what's going on? >> well, i think richard mentioned the fbi investigation of paula broadwell. paula broadwell is general petraeus' biographer, and somebody who has been close to him. in literary circles. to speak a moment about the cia, general petraeus when he came to the cia about 15 months ago appointed as his deputy the then acting director michael morale who is a career agency analyst, michael more
follow the facts. we do not share outside the justice department, outside the fbi the facts of ongoing investigations. we made the determination as we were going through the matter that there was not a threat to national security. >> let's jump right in and bring in our friday morning political power panel. we have jackie kucinich political reporter for "usa today", democratic strategist blake zeb and msnbc contributor robert trainum. great to have you all here. we just heard from congressman king earlier today saying the general was asked right off the top whether the affair had an impact on his testimony. he said no. they moved on. but are all indications then that the affair is now a side note and lawmakers are truly focused on what took place in benghazi and the intelligence they have now? >> this very minute, yeah. i think that's the case. will that remain the focus? i don't know. because there's a lot of questions still out there about petraeus and his relationship with his biographer as well as joe kelly in tampa. and general allen. i mean, there are a lot of moving parts here.
. lawmakers were set to be briefed by the fbi today on capitol hill. they have a lot of questions about all of this. why did no one inform congress or the white house that the director of the cia was currently under investigation. big question mark over that. doug, what's the latest on this today? >> developments continue to come in fast and furiously. catherine herridge is reporting some key lawmakers are openly questioning the veracity of david petraeus' testimony when he said the attack was a flash mob. and a demonstration that spun out of control. with that explanation overwhelmingly rejected many on the hill say it's vital that petraeus testify. >> i would like to hear from him within the next week or so. there is so much to learn. he has just gotten back from a trip over there. the american people have a right to know. >> reporter: investigators wants to explore whether he may have molded his briefing to the white house narrative to keep them from exposing his affair. martha: doug, obviously a lot of people on the hill as we just saw senator barrasso upset that the fbi did not alert t
chief called it an act of terror. we had the fbi and i believe the national center for counterterrorism also giving briefings. >> paul: that's right. >> saying this. why was general petraeus's testimony then so at odds with other parts of the community? >> but does this, would this give-- what does it mean for, say, susan rice and the administration then? is this, does this help them politically by shielding them or does petraeus here saying i thought it was a terrorist attack, does that mean this puts, for example, susan rice's statements more up to scrutiny? >> well, i think answers the fundamental question, did they deliberately mislead on this case for political reasons because they were driving the narrative that al-qaeda had been decimated and the war, war was receding or a question of incompetence. neither of those two things is good for the administration although it's after the election, so, they can get the consequences. >> let's take a look at the president talking about susan rice, the u.n. ambassador who many think he will nominate to succeed hillary clinton as secretary of
murders in l.a. and he made it to the fbi's ten most wanted list. he was nabbed thanksgiving day in guadalajara, mexico. federal authorities held a news conference. take a listen. >> catching a top ten fugitive in the fbi is a big deal. that's something that all of our fbi agents aspire to do, so for the folks back behind me to have the opportunity to be involved in that is really a big thing and i told them i wanted them to share in this press conference. >> here's one of the crimes saenz is accused of. the kidnapping, rape and murder of his own child's mother. fbi says she threatened to turn saenz in for two murders he's accused of committing in 1998. the fed says his latest job was at a hired gun for the drug cartels. >>> in the streets of egypt today, scenes just like this one. two sides clashing over president mohamed morsi's decision to grant himself sweeping new powers. the violent protests played out behind closed doors, morsi met with egypt's top judges to explain his move. these are the same judges who are now banned from overturning any decision he makes until a new co
. great panel on that coming up. martha: the fbi is launching a new effort now we're being told, some wondering what has taken so long, to try to get answers into what happened in that attack that killed four americans on september the 11th. congressman jason chaffetz is here live on that. what it could mean this fbi angle for the investigation. bill: also this town hall turned ugly. these are victims of superstorm sandy. why they are mad and who they are demanding answers from now. melissa: you sit there. you guys are a joke. you guys are a joke. you go home for the holidays. i don't. but you sit there with a smug smile. you know what i wish it was election, it if it was election time you would be worried about the election and not about the people. time to get up and fight for the people.

enforcement sources and law enforcement officials that the fbi is now investigating, and this is an ongoing investigation, into paula broadwell. she is someone who has had close access to general petraeus. she was his biographer and wrote a book on general petraeus called "all in." she's spent extensive time with him in afghanistan, has made numerous television appearances talking about general petraeus. says she's gone running with him. the fbi investigation is seeing whether she had improper access to the general -- to general petraeus' e-mails and may have had access to his -- may have accidentally or deliberately had access to classified information, and so we know this investigation is taking place and that it's identified paula broadwell, someone who has been close to david petraeus, which many people are saying could be an indication of the timing of all of this. >> okay. david ignatius, you're excellent at covering all this spy agencies. what's going on? >> well, i think richard mentioned the fbi investigation of paula broadwell. paula broadwell is general petraeus' biographer and s
be effective at slow-rolling everybody, changing their stories, and hiding behind there's an fbi investigation going on so we can't talk about. >> greta: what i don't like, and correct me if i'm wrong, it seems like that a lot of conversation on capitol hill is done behind closed doors. i'm always suspicious that things are overclassified as a way to protect the american people from hearing some information. it really isn't classified. am i wrong? >> i watch you religiously, and you make that point every time. you're right, except that there are some sources and methods that have to be -- >> greta: some. >> -- protected, classified. >> greta: i agree with some. >> but not nearly to the extent it's been done here. much of this could be put out in the open, you're right. they start with classified hearings. hopefully eventually it has to come out into open hearings and open testimony by the administration officials. they've got to stop hiding behind this notion there's an fbi investigation going on. this was an act of war. this wasn't just a crime committed. and at some point it's fine for the f
. raising concern that somebody has access to highly sensitive information >> the fbi followed the computer trail that led them to paula broadwell. both broadwell and petraeus admitted they were having an affair after reviewing evidence prosecutors concluded no crimes were committed, but now some members of congress are saying that they or president obama should have been notified that such an investigation was even being conducted. it's curious timing for the conspiracy theorists at fox news. they are still beating the drum on benghazi. petraeus was supposed to testify over the matter. >> based on the evidence we had then, this was the obama administration's watergate. >> officials say petraeus's decision to leave the cia was entirely personal and had nothing to do with benghazi or politics. but that's not how fox news sees it. >> there's not many stories that could knock the president's reelection right out of the headlines. not many. we got one. >> are you assuming that's why they didn't tell the story until after the election? >> the plot thickens. >> the fact that his scandal wasn't me
is at the epicenter of this scandal. new this is morning she is not likely to face charges. fbi agents raided her home, taking computers and other documents earlier this week. finally, we now know the identity of the fbi agent who first investigated the whole mess. by now you probably know him as the shirtless agent, the guy who sent a shirtless photo to jill kelly, the other woman involved in this mess. fbi agents name is frederick humphries, over those supposedly harassing e-mails now linked to paula broadwell. hope you got that. >>> controversy over benghazi, as you know, has reached a boiling point, though. yesterday at his first press conference, being row elected, president obama has strong words for anyone who blames u.s. -- united nations ambassador susan rice for the benghazi response. here is what the president said. >> as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> oka
petraeus or is that totally irrelevant? we don't know yet. >> john: that's how the fbi got gotti. do you think that if that were the case, if that attack was motivated because there was a secret c.i.a. black sight prison somewhere in the consulate this is what the c.i.a.'s director's girlfriend was saying in a speech. when fox news and information clearing house are agreeing on something, i'm disturbed in general. or inspired. but if that's the case, is that a scandal so huge that the media won't even touch it? >> i think the media will touch it. the media is digging on it. i know certainly our michael hastings is look at it. i'm sure national security report from every news outlet is digging because that would be the finish in some ways, the story of the century. you're tapping into the major pop culture moment and the return to -- and sort of a massive national security breakthrough. i mean everybody wants that story if they can get it. the question is could they get it. we're talking about that that's going
. why we haven't -- fbi most wanted list, if you want to have civil justice, or send the military in and do what's necessary. neither has happened in that regard, sean. >> sean: i agree with all of that, but it seems to me there's an unwillingness, a mysterious reluctance to admit the simple truth, that there are radical islamists that want a worldwide caliphate, and they have no problems killing innocent men, women and children. >> shouldn't they brought to u.s. soil? they make a mockery of our system, shows a weakness on the part of the united states, certainly not the message that we want to spread to the rest of the world or do us harm. why do they need a u.s. presence here? they don't have a legal classification that warrants that type of placement. >> sean: i'll tell you why, because they can get law books in our prisons and figure out ways to sue the united states of america. >> i think the president is in a big pickle on this. he's made promises all over the place. i don't think he's going to be able to owner o honor any of th. >> like closing gitmo. >> sean: time for our

by the i.g. and the d.o.g. and the fbi and the cia and that might have something to do with it. it is a situation that has turned tampa, and again, we have seen it on "saturday night live" running the humorous skit, but at the heart of it is macdill air force base which is right now observing events in israel, they don't control the military affairs there, but over in egypt as well as the rest of the region, so they have a lot on their mind as well as u.s. special options command and as well as the area that brings in millions off dollars into the local community. so it is a mandate to engage with the community and that is what parts of this "friends with macdill" was. >> well, talk about the probe and how that it is run to investigate and reveal, i guess, how many people around the community have access to the nation's military leaders. >> no, they know. there's about 800 people on the "friends of macdill" program and created by the previous base commanders to get community leaders on to the base in daylight hours and nonsecure areas to engage with the community. what they are

, what happened is he told the senators that it was actually the fbi who took al qaeda references out of the unclassified talking points. only to call back several hours later saying, oops, i was wrong, it wasn't the fbi, it was the cia. here is what lindsey graham said about that. >> i can't help but feel incredibly disappointed that we were told something at 10:00 a.m. that couldn't withstand scrutiny for six hours. and is totally inconsistent with what we were told the day before. we have five different explanations of who changed the talking points to take out benghazi. and four different reasons. this is becoming a joke. >> so what these meetings least this particular issue has done is added fuel to the fire and it is not like, you needed to add any more fuel to the fire, especially for senators like lindsey graham who is already really publicly outraged about a lot of issues dealing with the benghazi attack. >> this is just one more. one more. dana bash, thank you. >>> after trashing the hit tv show "two and a half men," the actor angus jones, now back tracking from his controve

on the specifics of the investigation. the fbi has its own protocols in terms of how they proceed. and i'm going to let director mueller and others examine those protocols, and make some statements to the public generally. i do want to emphasize what i said before. general petraeus had an extraordinary career. deserved this country with great distinction in iraq, in afghanistan, and as head of the cia. by his own assessment, he did not meet the standards that he felt were necessary as the director of cia with respect to this personal matter that he is now dealing with, with his family, and with his wife. and it's on that basis that he tendered his resignation, and it's on that basis that i accepted it. but i want to emphasize that from my perspective at least, he has provided this country and extraordinary service. we are safer because of the work that dave petraeus has done, and my main hope right now is that he and his family are able to move on, and that this instead of being -- this into a being a single side note on what has been otherwise been an extraordinary career.

trust in the fbi, cia, at home and security. i have complete trust within the confines of their agency walls. if you look at all of the botched terrorist plots that have been occurring since 9/11, it is absolutely amazing what our agencies are doing to keep us safe. who i do not trust is the white house suits who apparently put a spin on the nsa's official briefs and input on worldwide events. i believe the white house puts a political spin on everything that comes to the president, to the secretary of state. then to the american people. it was 9/11 when we had benghazi going down. that is a data i think the president would rather have nothing going down. apparently there was something going down. with petraeus, is it not ironic that he is now being the scrutinized over these extramarital affairs when he is about to testify in regards to what happened in benghazi. >>let's get a couple more comments on facebook and twitter. thank you for all of your calls. coming up next, congressman ron paul, a republican of texas set to retire. he will talk about that, the fiscal cliff, and the latest
